After beating Austria, Hungary is in a prime position heading into this contest. Iceland got a draw in its match against Portugal so they also have to be pleased with their positioning so far.
Heading into group play it looked like this would be the match to decide second place in the group and now it might be the match to decide first.
All it takes is one result for this to change so quickly.
Iceland has to be pleased with their draw against Portugal. They were down relatively early and were killed in possession but scored in the second half to get a valuable point.
Now they have to try and build upon it.
Their lone goal came from an unlikely source Birkir Bjarnason. The midfielder plays for Basle in Switzerland but has only scored 6 times in more than 40 international matches coming into the tournament.
Even though they got the draw against Portugal they spent way too much of the game on the defensive.
They need to get more set piece opportunities and find ways to get their most talented players into scoring areas.
Iceland does not have much experience in important games like this other than in qualifying.
This will be a test to see if they can play strong with so much on the line.
Hungary was expected to finish last in the Group so the fact that they beat Austria 2-0 was one of the great surprises of the tournament so far. The match stats were pretty even except for those two goals of course.
This is a relatively green team. They are playing a bunch of guys who don’t have a ton of experience either with the national side or with the big time football clubs.
That is part of the reason not much was expected.
Coming into the tournament manager Bernd Storck was known as the type to take chances.
It will be interesting to see if he stick with that now that they have a win under their belt and their chances of advancing are good.
Hungary is just a slight underdog in this one despite the impressive opening victory.
The temptation might be to play to a draw and assume Portugal takes care of business the rest of the way but the opportunity is there.
Free Iceland vs. Hungary Euro 2016 Prediction:
Iceland is looking to parlay some momentum into this one. Drawing with Portugal could given them an edge and they might be better than we think.
On the other side we are pretty certain that Hungary is not an elite team but they got a big win and playing with confidence can be an equalizer even at this level. Another win is not out of the range of possibilities.
4* Free Euro 2016 Betting Pick: Draw
Iceland will want to push the action but in the end I think Hungary will be good enough to keep the action from getting away from them. Iceland will need to beat Austria in their final group game to have a chance.
A win and a draw could mean that Hungary is a surprise entrant in the knockout stage.
A win would guarantee it but I think they will play it safe.
